Wonderful news from HCN member and ASI consulting architect Saptarshi Sanyal:

3 continuous (on and off) years of work here. UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre has finally approved the Statement on Konarak that I drafted. It should be on their website soon. It takes time, but it happens.

Being shared especially for lovers of and professionals trying to preserve our built heritage. This was prepared with generous inputs from my erstwhile senior colleague, eminent archaeologist Dr. D.V. Sharma and officers of Bhubaneswar Circle, ASI.
